BLACK CATS NYC - Black Cats (Nothing's Gonna Stop Us)
Out of the ashes of a pre-gentrified lower east side come the BLACK CATS NYC. A guitar driven Rock 'n’ Roll band straight off the streets of New York City. This quartet performs with the vibe and style of Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers, the tongue-in-cheek power of AC/DC, and an IV full of Chuck Berry and Eddie Cochran on a constant drip. Taking it back to when cool was king and grit ruled the airwaves.
BLACK CATS NYC are: Andrew Giordano: Vocals/ Rhythm Guitar, Francesco D’Ambrosio: Lead Guitar, Stan Esposito II: Bass Guitar, and Jason Reddish: Drums. Put your club clothes on, grab that someone special, and "Come Along for the Ride!”
BLACK CATS NYC have a new single/video:
As the old adage goes "If it ain't broke don't fix it" - Once again collaborating with Corey Zack and feeling a bit retro, the Cats went back into the Cocoon and laid down some hot tracks for their latest effort Black Cats (Nothing's Gonna Stop Us). This post-apocalyptic, hard hitting rocker is an eerie take on modern society. Written as the band's theme, it is loosely based on the iconic 1954 novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.
Looking to a produce a video that would match the tone of the song as well as emulate the late-night horror films of their youth, the boys recruited Manonce, one of NYC's most innovative artist/ photographers, to attain the right atmosphere. Shooting began late October '22 on their home turf, the back alleys of NYC. Incorporating scenes from the studio, on the stage at the Bowery Electric, and utilizing clips from the public domain (not to mention a little creativity). This post-apocalyptic Rock n' Roll thriller is chock-full o' vampires, zombies, broken hearts, and loud guitars...what more can you ask for?!?

“I love the intro of this song with the drums and guitar riff. The tone of the vocals reveal a dark and mysterious vibe. ” - Natália Barão
“ Good meat'n'potatos with more than a little Iggy Pop attitude thrown in. If Little Steven's Underground Garage played more new music, this would be something he'd play.” - Alan Cross
